I read Lesh's book only last year and I loved being able to at least stream the older shows here as he desribed them in the book.
I think at least part of Phil's general excitement about early era was it was all new and they were young.I certainly have alot less 'war stories' to tell about my 30-40's than I did when I was a young sprite!!

Yes, everyone starts out as "young lions." Imagine having played hundreds of concerts, having played the eleven, dark star, all those intense jams. Then picture the flow behind 1976--77. It's a mellower sound, the tightness and cleaness of which take their toll on heavy improvisation.

Reinvention is often a key to keeping it interesting, but not always.
